Hizb 39
Juz 20
And We verily sent unto Thamud their brother Salih, saying: Worship Allah. And lo! they (then became two parties quarrelling. (45) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find mercy' (46) They said: we augur ill of thee and of those who are with thee. He said: your augury is with Allah. Aye! ye are a people being tested. (47) And there were nine persons in the city who used to cause turmoil in the land and did not wish reform. (48) [and] after having bound one another by an oath in God's name, they said: "Indeed, we shall suddenly fall upon him and his household by night [and slay them all]; and then we shall boldly say to his next of kin, 'We did not witness the destruction of his household - and behold, we are indeed men of truth!'" (49) Thus they devised a plan, and We also devised a plan, but they were not aware of it. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge. (52) And We saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. (53) And tell of Lot. He said to his people, "Will you commit evil knowingly? (54) Would ye go in lustfully unto men instead of women? Aye! ye are a people addicted to ignorant ways. (55) ۞ The only answer of his people was, "Drive out Lot and his family from the city. They are a people who make themselves out to be pure." (56) Eventually We saved (Lot) and his family, except his wife. We had decreed that she should be among those who would remain behind. (57) And We rained on them a rain, and evil was the rain of those who had been warned. (58)
